SM Community Challenge
Hey Guys,

As you may know theres been a bit of a rumble about creating a new challenge made by the community as its been a while since the last one.

Please vote to have the topic for the challenge, After a week (well too sunday night 1st feb) I'll get the results and the then post up the winner in the challenge forum for you guys to start on.

Unfortunatly theres no prizes for the winners, just the glory of completing it and possible a model for your demo reel.

If anyone's got a better Idea for the topic shout it out and if theres a concensus for it then we'll go for that, otherwise its going to be from the list.

The topics are,

Villian - Create a bad guy, he/she/it can be anything as long as its mean and bad! Mobster squid, mutant evil business man etc etc go for it.

Future Product - Take an everyday item and then make it look like its 100 years into the future, what you you reckon your telephone, TV's, remote control, going to look like?

Spaceship - As the title suggests.

Interior shot - Again as the title suggests, any interior, from a comfey lounge to a dirty dank dungeon.

If this clashes with any mod's and they take it upon themselves to start up a challenge go for it.

Cheers

Steve

spaceship for me!

i think its an easy topic and we could have some excellent results in the short time for the comp.

It would be great to have lots of finished entries from people of all abilities. i sometimes find it hard to finish these comps with all hte other stuff we have to juggle in life... plus it will be fun!

I think the winner sets up the next challenge as the prize - setting up a poll of 4 posable comps and we vote again.

I love the fact villains is winning right now hehe

yeah - good idea tweetytunes.

i'd like to to do either a villain or spaceship, but picked spaceship just to even it out a little.

i came up with a good idea for the future products one on the way home from work
I think i might do it anyway... i have a couple of shots that i've tracked but haven't got a clue what to put in them yet.
the shot is a pan across the corner of a metal table in a proffessional style kitchen and finishes pointing at the foot of a door. the other is a shot of liverpool street in london.

Reading over the options again it came to me that we are missing a few details - and I think these should be answered now instead of after.

1) Time limit
2) What type of comp Modellering or Modellering and textureing.

I think as a community we should set these for the challenge
